However, I saw one driving alone and it seems like the backend was smashed up and the cockpit area inflated. Proportion seems a bit off. I can't wait to see the new gen Model S though.

The interior and fit/finish is top notch. I think the 3 is ugly from the outside but it is a nice car as soon as you step into it.

the only thing faster than tesla's cars is it's burn rate.

I've been in a few of them more than a few times (definitely more than just a test drive) and the fit and finish is easily on the same level as BMW, possibly a tad nicer.

Maybe this person ordered a Modal 3 and was just saving the plate for when they ever actually get their Model 3. Once its there, just transfer over the customer plate.

I have driven enough BMWs and rode in the P100d enough times to know that if I was going to spend 6 figures on something, the Tesla would win out between those two.

I guess its cool if you only plan to race from stoplight to stoplight. Other than that there is nothing fast about it.

I had a 2016 M235i for about 6 months so I can say with a fair amount of confidence that the Zed is much more fun.

the key here is fit and finish... and I am sorry, but build quality is Tesla's worst feature... they rushed all these cars to meet delivery expectations and qc clearly is not a top priority... i think of Tesla more as a sw engineering firm and it seems it's ran that way, they dont really know shit about cars... no buttons? faq me... has anyone ever heard of paying attention to the road?
...oh and it would appear they don't know much about finance either...

I bet the Civic driver has his $1000 deposit down and secured the vanity plate expecting a 2018 delivery (based on Musk's lofty projections). Depending on where he is on the list, that is starting to look like 20192020!

Just saw my neighbor driving a new Tesla Model 3.
In his driveway, he has a Tesla Model X, Tesla Model S, and Tesla Model 3. All white! haha I wonder if he still has his i3. Seems like Tesla is doing something right because it seems as if he could purchase pretty much any car he wants.
